Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: TDIH a Bruce classic

I think the transition period was actually part of the problem. Listen to the handful of shows before Bruce joined in Sept 1990. Vince sounds pretty good playing the standard parts. Nothing amazing, but tasteful. Bruce crowded him out, didn't let him fully develop, and for that reason I think he was always tentative in the hot seat. Don't get me wrong, I don't think he was some amazing musician, but he wasn't all that bad. They misahandled him.
